Taste Mutt City crawfish without making the trek to Chinatown
Houston’s Chinatown is pretty darn cool. With roughly a million restaurants stacked along strip center after strip center, it may not be the prettiest neighborhood in town, but it is the tastiest. Not only does it offer up awesomeness like dim sum and oodles of noodles, it also plays home to Houston’s crown jewel: the Asian-Cajun mudbug. Sadly, you’ll waste most of your free time dodging highway truck debris whilst trying to get to one of the many Chinatown crawfish joints. But you won’t waste anytime if you hit the in-the-loop LA Crawfish off Richmond, which offers the critters soaked in Viet-Cajun butter and spices, and crawfish pho, all year long.
Time spent: 1 hour (but only because we’re guessing you’re new to peeling crawfish)
